Returning to Nature

We gather in the wooded place

Familiar faces from long ago


We are reverent, but not solemn

This is a joyful time

Celebrate the life of the matriarch

Remember the traditions she created

Surrounded by a cathedral of trees

Lowered into the Earth by volunteers

Wrapped in only a shroud

Nature will embrace her

Miniature trees are planted to mark the space

The cycle is complete

Bringing what I learned in Florida to the great state of Illinois as I continue my journey. After almost 30 years in Florida, I decided it was time for a change of scenery. I have always loved speaking about the big issues. My blog posts are a way to express my uninterrupted thoughts of the issue. I love science, math, technology, yet enjoy the challenge of free verse poetry and examining the world critically.
